  • Overview

    “Promises, Promises” is a Boy Scouts of America fundraising event, promising the life-long values and strong foundation of the Scout Oath and Law instilled in Scouts of all ages. It’s a unique evening featuring the presentation of the “North Star Award” (the highest award a non-registered adult can achieve for service they provide to Boy Scouts of America) to Mr. George Milligan, President of The Graham Group, Inc.

    The event will include an opportunity for guests to make donations to "fund the need". "Fund the need" gifts direct support local Scouts, for example: - $150 to uniform a Scout - $285 to send a Scout to camp - $1500 to sponsor a Scout in hard to reach areas - Other

    The event will also include a fun-filled virtual knot-tying activity featuring Terry Fossum (winning team from the survival television show “Kicking & Screaming” and former Scoutmaster); and a delicious dinner (served by the chef in your home). Sponsorship dollars help underwrite the cost of the event. All remaining sponsorship proceeds, including money raised will support local Scouting programs, for boys and girls, in the 27 counties served by Mid-Iowa Council.
